Nylstar has been in the business of manufacturing yarns and fibers for the last 80 years now. They have been known as the specialist of polyamide 6.6 fibers and yarns. They have recently introduced a new luxury fiber called Nylgold which they showcased at the Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics held in October at Shanghai New International Expo Centre, Shanghai, China. They claim it to be a revolutionary development in the field of textiles and the beginning of a new era.
Nylstar claims that Nylgold luxury fiber features 24-carat gold nanostructures, and offers permanent and effective care of the skin and lead the textile market into the era of dermawear. It is a combination of luxury, beauty, and anti-ageing through its protection of the skin and belongs to the very top end of the market. The company is expecting the high end brands with special design capabilities to use the new fiber for their high end products and apparel.
The new fiber is the result of a breakthrough in nanotechnology with biological properties. Nylgold’s use of nano particles offers anti-oxidant, moisturizing and anti-ageing benefits. Nylstar is presently focusing on the underwear market but they hope to to be accepted by active wear as well.
